  1. Thanks Jaime, Every time I go to Houston, I promise myself to go to see it, but haven’t made it yet ! I got to see it from the road once, which really whet my appeite. (I was out-voted by the family) I enjoyed your photos. It’s still on my bucket list….

  2. She’ll stick around if the state of insanity known as Texas can find it in its cold little heart to raise enough taxes to rebuild her before she rusts out from under the paint job and sinks. Seriously, that’s a problem.
